Till I’m called to eternity–


Till the path we share glows,
till heaven kisses the earth,
till we live like stones–
dying younger than death–
praying longer than Christ–
we share a fate of unison;
a fate of division,
a fate of completion,
a fate beyond yardstick measure,
——time and fate beyong our eyes.

For I see the throne of God,
and an irony of satan,
for when a guinea fowl is at crowing,
then the hen is surely at laying.

I beseech you my blood–
I beseech thee my soul–
that you will give ears,
and give your heart,
that I may speak to quicken thy soul….

I am a believer of Africa,
a soul undertaker of the universe;
so let Africa speak,
let Africa stand,
for the world is a glorious ours….
Our souls,
our fate,
our Africa!
